Thinking out loud here ..........; A 13% to 15% (of TT weight) loaded tongue weight for a 31ft long TT would be ideal. So, under a worse case scenario
with the TT loaded to it's GVWR of 7,500lbs, that puts the ideal loaded tongue weight in a range of 975lbs to 1,125lbs.
IMO the Equal-i-zer model you identified should be just fine.., but should you tow at the TT's GVWR, watch your tongue weight. The 27DSRL has an adequate CCC, so IMO most wouldn't be towing at the TT's GVWR.
I think the Equal-i-zer product and Reese HP Dual Cam product are both great WDH's each with integrated sway control. One of the reasons I like the Reese product is that different rated spring bars can be used with the WDH, where the Equal-i-zer you have to purchase a whole new WDH if one wants to change the spring bar rating.
With any brand WDH, proper mounting and adjustment is key to optimum towing performance. Remember that you will be departing the RV dealer's lot under "unloaded" conditions..., the WDH will in most cases have to be re-adjusted once you have established your "loaded" TV/TT conditions.
